A slow draining bathroom sink will eventually become a no draining bathroom sink. The good news is it’s very easy to unclog that bathroom sink in about ten minutes. Follow the steps below to get your sink draining like new again.
Step 1: Tools’ You Need
You will need just a couple of basic tools to unclog a bathroom sink. The first tool is a pair of channel locks. These are a large pair of pliers with jaws that will expand to at least 4″. You could also use a pipe wrench if you have one, however if you need to purchase either one I would recommend the channel locks. They are a much more universal tool for most projects around the house. A pair of channel locks should cost under $10 and can be found at most hardware stores.
The other tools you will need can be found around the house. The first is a small bucket and a metal coat hanger or stiff piece of wire.
Step 2: Get Ready to Unclog that Bathroom Sink
First and most important is to clear everything out under the sink. You will need room to move around when disconnecting the drain lines. The next thing is to place the bucket under the drain pipe to catch any water that comes out. The last thing you should do is get a rag or paper towel handy to clean the gunk that you will inevitably run in to.
